The VB-M46 inherits the high performance features of previous Canon PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) cameras, but includes significant improvements with a new image sensor and processor. Ideal for the security and surveillance markets, the VB-M46 contains a new 1.3 megapixel high sensitivity image sensor (1280 x 960) and 20x optical zoom lens which provides exceptional low light performance with a minimum subject illumination level of just 0.02 lux at 1/30 shutter speed. The new image processor provides high quality video streaming, including H.265, H.264, and MJPEG video formats up to 60 fps.
Other improvements include High Dynamic Range (HDR) that combines frames of different exposure, giving the user even exposure over the camera’s field of view. Along with improved video, the VB-M46 also now supports the AAC-LC audio standard for improved audio quality up to 48 kHz at 128 kbps.
An available simple camera setting allows users to instantly set their camera up to fit their application such as Motion Priority, Low Light Visibility, Depth Priority, and Data size reductions.
Various power sources include Power over Ethernet (PoE), 12V DC, as well as the optional PA-V18 ac adapter. The VB-M46 also supports ONVIF profile T to allow for quick integration with 3rd party video management solutions. With all the new features and performance enhancements, the Canon VB-M46 continues the Canon tradition of exceeding the demands of the security and surveillance market.
